PokerStars EPT Prague Festival To Kick Off On December 7th

59 events filled with poker action and culminating with the EPT Prague Main Event!

The European Poker Tour sponsored by PokerStars is moving to Prague for one of the biggest stops on the circuit and also the last of this year. The action is set to start on December 7th and it will include an array of options across 59 separate tournaments that even feature new formats like Irish Hold’em and Super Hold’em.

€50,000 Super High Roller

One of the major changes made to the Prague schedule this year is the addition of a Super High Roller Tournament with a buy-in of €50,000. This will be the event with the highest buy-in ever to be held in the Czech Republic and it also guarantees that it will attract some of the biggest players in the world looking to get a share of the prize pool.

Among the early confirmed participants for this tournament there are the winner of the EPT Barcelona Super High Roller event Oliver Busquet, Asia Championship of Poker title holder Fabian Quoss and PokerStars’ Team Pros Ike Haxton and Jason Mercier.

€5,300 Main Event

It is safe to say that the Main Event will be the highlight of the stop and Prague has seen a large number of players make their way to the tables over the past several years. With over a thousand participants for the EPT Prague Main Event last year, the chances of exceeding that figure are very good this time around.

Needless to say that big names will be on the felt and so will amateur players willing to put down €5,300 for the chance to play with some of the best in the game and compete for the big prizes.

Other highlights of the Poker Festival include the WCOOP awards ceremony that will see online champions collect their prizes. Fedor “CrownUpGuy” Holz won the WCOOP Main Event this year for $1.3 million.
